Day Six – The Finale

It is finished. And now it’s begun. I’ll tell you this, today’s drive felt a heckuva lot longer than 4 1/2 hours. Actually that’s not true. The first couple hours were great. It was amazing to see house …

Day Five

One more to go. Let’s see, where did we leave you guys… Midnight in Winchester, surrounded by bed popcorn, right? We had another late morning today, although a good percentage of that was spent waiting on the DoorDasher …
